If you are thinking about getting CoolSculpting, you may be wondering – How many CoolSculpting sessions will I need to see results. CoolSculpting is a great way to reduce troublespots that are difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise. But the number of sessions needed will depend on various factors, including how your body responds to treatment.
How CoolSculpting freezes away unwanted fat
CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to freeze away unwanted fat. The cold temperatures selectively target and destroy the fat cells, which are more susceptible to the cold temperature. The treated fat cells are then naturally metabolized by the body over the following weeks and months.
How many CoolSculpting sessions will I need to see results?
A single CoolSculpting session reduces fat in the treated area by 20-25%. Physicians often wait to see the type of results patients get after an initial treatment, before deciding if more sessions are necessary.
The results of CoolSculpting are not immediately visible. While some improvement may be seen within 3 weeks, it can take up to 3 months for the final results to show. Patients that would like more improvement after that time may require an additional session.
The number of sessions you will need to see results is very dependent on your expectations, as well as the number of areas that require treatment.
What areas can CoolSculpting Treat?
CoolSculpting is FDA approved for treating the abdomen, submental area, flanks, inner and outer thighs, bra fat, back fat, upper arms, and fat beneath the buttocks.
